My Sharp BDHP20U will not play regular DVD's

I place a DVD in the blue ray and they do not show on the TV. I do get sound. I put blue ray DVD in and it plays. Will a softwar update help this problem? My TV is new and is also a Sharp 52'. Do I need to do something to my TV insted?

Thank you for your attention in this matter,
Chris West

It wont play all blue ray movies


Corinth,
I had a similar problem. I had some that would play the intro and menu but when I hit the play button, nothing. It would just sit there. To solve it, just download the update and install it in your player. Go to the Sharp website to get the update and instruction on how to do it.

New Sharp BD-HP16U won't play Blu Ray Discs


You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.

Will not play Blue Ray DVD


I had the same problem. Try this. Contact Sharp and have them email you the firmware update. You will need to download it from the email and transfer it to the player via a flash drive. See if that works. I am about to return my Sharp Blu Ray player to Costco and go back to DVD. There seem to be a lot of problems with the technology. Even when movies start to play, they have freezes and it is sometimes hard to get the menu to show up

Won't play a new blu-ray video


I bought a Sharp BD-HP20S and got Stargate Continuum to play on it, only problem was it wouldn't.
Had bad pixilation, jumping picture and stuttering sound.
Went onto Sharp's website and followed the instructions for downloading and burning a firmware update cd (or usb stick).
Made an update cd, put it in and within 5 minutes the update was over.
Result?
Prefect picture and sound.
Really simple and easy to do.
If you don't want to make a cd yourself Sharp will send one out to you if you contact them.
